The cost of non-medical home care varies depending on where you live and the amount of care you will need. The best way to budget for home care is to determine the number of hours you will need per week.

According to the “Cost of Care Survey”, an annual report by a well-known agency, home care costs less than other options like adult daycare, assisted living, and skilled nursing. In fact, the national average cost of home care per hour is $20 per hour, but again this can vary depending on the type of care you need and your geography. The agency also reports that the cost of home care services increased by 2.56% Since 2016.
